10th Annual National Dutch Oven Gathering
Every year Dutch oven cooking enthusiasts from all over the country gather to swap ideas, compete in cook-offs, and just have fun cooking outdoors. The public is invited to a free open house to see what Dutch oven cooking is all about. You can view cooking demonstrations and chat with experienced cooks to see what it takes to be a great outdoor chef. Drinks and food will be available for purchase from on-site vendors. For those who want in-depth, hands on lessons in Dutch oven cooking, members of the Central Arkansas Dutch Oven Group will be offering an opportunity to “Adopt a Chef” after the Saturday open house. Each participating group will receive a commemorative 12-inch Dutch oven to take home, recipes to try, and admission to the evening Dutch oven pot luck supper. Your chef will guide you step-by-step though the process of making a delicious Dutch oven dish. Participants will choose a recipe from a pre-determined list. All ingredients will be provided. Please call 501-865-5813 to register. The cost for "Adopt a Chef" is $50 per family (or group) of up to 6 people.
